Truth nothing can stop the Power of God.
Bryan

Bryan, next time write it like this!
Truth! Nothing can stop the Power of God!

Well, Christan and Mark_V, it would seem we're done here?
But, in truth we've done nothing!

Peace! My True Brothers in Christ!
I thank God for you, you are truly a blessing!
If I could say more, I would!
I Love You, so much!
Peace

Hey, I think, i see a little light!
How about you?

Samuel, you say,
"If we are all chosen and have no choice then that must be true for the all the history of GOD."
Not everyone is chosen Samuel. Only the elect of God are chosen for salvation. Not all as you say. If you mean all believers then it is true. God took into account all matters for everyone of the elect to be saved. People make choices in life, but none have a will that is free. Unbelievers do the will of Satan, believers do the will of God. No one is free. Then give,
"Eze 18:24 ) Which does not mean they are righteous by the righteousness of Christ, but they had done righteous deeds of themselves.
---Mark_V. on 9/28/13


Christian: " 1 Pet.2: 8 ..., being disobedient , whereunto they were appointed ". Appointment into disobedience is not God's act but the devil's own, because he wants all to rebel against God & become condemned like him.
---Adetunji on 9/28/13


Mark_V.: "We do not defeat Satan. Never have never will. He is more powerful then you."

Jesus says we can. Luke 10:19, 2 Cor. 10:4, Mark 16:17, James 4:7, 1 John 4:4

Mark_V.: "We protect ourselves from his attacks. But we do not defeat him."

WE cannot protect ourselves, but only with the help of God.

Mark_V.: "Second, he is only one Spirit, he is not omnipresent. He cannot be everywhere at one time,..."

Satan has the help of his millions of minions.

Try reading your bible, Mark V.

Truth nothing can stop the Power of God. But on this earth His word Is his rule. He will not break his word cause if he did he would be as a man a lair. Matthew 13:58 unbelief, Mark 6:6, Lack of Faith, Hebrews 3:19 unbelief again, Mark 9:24 Help with his unbelief. You as a Christian the things you don't believe about the word. Don't worry about it cause it want produce in your life. That is your call not Gods', cause he just keeps on giving and giving and giving
---Bryan on 9/27/13




If we are all chosen and have no choice then that must be true for the all the history of GOD.


Eze 18:24

But when the righteous turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and doeth according to all the abominations that the wicked man doeth, shall he live? All his righteousness that he hath done shall not be mentioned: in his trespass that he hath trespassed, and in his sin that he hath sinned, in them shall he die.
---Samuelbb7 on 9/27/13


Adetunji, if only you'll believe what Peter wrote, "being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed". You will understand that King Saul falls into this vessel of dishonor, just like all reprobates.

King Saul was a godless man and was never loved by God. From the offset when Israel rejected God (read 1 Samuel 8), He prophesied what kind of king will rule over them. "And ye shall cry out in that day because of your king which ye shall have chosen you, and the Lord will not hear you in that day." 1 Samuel 8:18

Don't fool yourself into thinking that King Saul was an elect of God, he was a product of God's hate, if you can understand and believe Romans 9.
---christan on 9/27/13


markv you are so out of context. God word is as a "2" edged sword. What does a "2" edged sword do? Cuts on both sides. Which way do you cut with the word. Jesus said I set before you life or death. His work is finished again he said I set before you life or death. he gave us his word it will produce life or death which do you choice. It will be what you choice not God, he just sets it before you and you make the chose. It is not Gods' fault if you YOU choose death. His will is for us all to choose life.
---Bryan on 9/27/13


kathr, you meet someone, anyone!
Standing there saying something like there is no God!

Clearly this is the spirit of unbelief, right or wrong?
This is a person who does not believe, right!
He is at enmity with God and at friendship with the world, right!
Just as you say!

Now do his words weaken you? No right!
They have just the opposite effect!

I just want you to realize, how someone even in disbelief can strengthen you.
Now I know you can argue this point, till the end of time!

But it will not change the fact, that someone in disbelief has just finished strengthening your belief in God.
So did you thank him for strengthening your belief in God?
You should, right!
Peace!

In fact you are doing exactly as God wanted you to do. Not because He made you, but to show you why you are responsible.

---Mark_V. on 9/27/13
so you say Ted Haggard did EXACTLY as God WANTED.

Oh the Blasphemy there is on line here falsely accusing God of WANTING this for Ted.

MarkV You are one SICK man. So when you were molested was it GOD making them molest you. Why the bitterness. God WANTED IT MARKV! you say God's power even works through the unsaved ..right! God may ALLOW but he never WANTS which means WILLS sin..
---kathr4453 on 9/27/13




The job is to believe the gospel, nay much more than that!

For what if some did not believe? (shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect?)
God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar, as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.

The question is!
What will stop the power of God from working in your life Christians?
The answer is quite simply nothing!
Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

By this you should be able to see!
Even if you, anyone in heaven or anyone and earth never opens their mouth again!
Nothing will stop God!
This clear, Peace!
---TheSeg on 9/27/13


kathr, I thought you were going to stop arguing? You gave your word.
You say there is a difference, what is the difference? If you are stopping the power of God, that means you have more power then God.
And let me tell you, you've got the ability to disobey God, but you are not defeating the power of God. In fact you are doing exactly as God wanted you to do. Not because He made you, but to show you why you are responsible.
---Mark_V. on 9/27/13


Hello, Bro.Mark, ,you I respect you alot.However,I got to disagree as others, we do not tell God what to do,when we go out of his will.We are in rebellion to God' will... we have stop his power..Lk11:21-26
Lk.6:49.
1Jhn 4:4,5,6. vs.6b This is how we recognize the Spirit of truth and the spirit of falsehood.

---Lidia4796 on 9/27/13


No the question is STOP the Power of God from working in and through you that is a big difference.

When we allow our flesh to take over our daily life, we are then at enmity with God. Friendship with the world is enmity with God. God cannot work through your old flesh sin man. Paul warns those in Galatia, having BEGUN in the spirit, are you now being made perfect through the flesh, by keeping the law?
---kathr4453 on 9/27/13


Adetunji, this is not a game. Stop the power of God" were the words used. My answer is that no one can stop the power of God.
When you quote any passage in the bible that seems to imply something against the nature, character and attributes of God, you have got it wrong. God nature never changes. No one, nor thing has more power then God. If anyone or anything had more power then God, then God would stop been God. I see many here interpret passages that go against who God is. I laugh because they know not what they say. If God commands something and people do not do it, they do not defeat the power of God, it only means that it will make them guilty. God is in control of all things, man, nature, even the devil and his buddies.
---Mark_V. on 9/27/13


What is my Job? Sow the Gospel it will set you free from all you religious rules, What is your Job? telling people that can't believe the word that way? Jesus set them free. Who the son sets free is free indeed. The word of God will consume your religious rules very time. His word is a consuming fire either you let it burn in you or it will burn you up.

And do you feel it is your job to do it??Rom_10:19!

We are the body of Christ, but members in particular!
There is only one body!
And if the ear shall say, because I am not the eye, I am not of the body, is it therefore not of the body?

But now hath (God set the members every one of them) in the body, (as it hath pleased him!)

Satan has the power to deceive the whole world.

Hae you not read how Eve was deceived by Satan?

And have you not read Revelation chapters 12, 13, 18, 19, 20?

Between Eve and before the second coming, Satan has done his job really well to deceive the whole world.

And have you not read Job and what Satan did when God took away his protection of Job? There is no protection by God in today's world save a few.

You can be a Christian with ZERO power in you live, because of you unbelief in what Jesus has give to you.
Bryan the ambassador of heaven
Rom_12:3 For I say (read the rest of it)

Here again, why cant you just speak the truth?
This sound like something Satan would answer!
Give up, ZERO power!

An ambassador to heaven??
Joh_1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

Before the world even knew God, they were empowered by God!
Ambassador of heaven??

He loved you before you even knew him!
There is no greater empowerment than his love.
As an ambassador, you should know this!

Israel:
Hos 4:6
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

//God alone knows the spirit, soul and flesh of His created and formed.He has declared both paths: straight and crooked.
All have sinned (crooked path)
When His Truth is revealed- confirmed By Him - what ever action that one has done Can Not Work Against God's plan of deliverance.

I'm sorry there Steveng didn't you write!

Satan has influence in all things concerning the world in which even christians live.(See influence, I agree!)
(Here where I need my boots)He has power over education, commerce, politics, and denominational/false religions.
(Take off the boots)He also has influence over people's thoughts, philosophies, ideas and opinions.
(Boots)The entire world are under his control, from his lies and deceptions.

When you use words like he has power, control you are lying!
Rom_13:1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.
God is not, God! Because we believe he is.

Ok, here is one...Thou shall worship no other gods before me.

So, who said that, GOD? Why would GOD say that? We know GOD is GOD the only TRUE GOD, who said Himself, thou shall worship no other gods before me. satan is the god of this world, so said Paul! RON is the god of Scientology , Allah is the god of ....and so on and so on. WE know that over these non existent gods is the Prince and POWER of the air...SATAN. WE as Christians overcome these powers and principalities! called the VICTORIOUS life. We can be defeated in our life here IF we disobey The Word of God. Many Christians die a defeated life. WHY, because friendship with the world had defeated their singlemindedness, to keep their mind on things ABOVE and not below.
---kathr4453 on 9/26/13


Steven, you say,
"I said that Satan is the god of this world."
look of the word "god" not "God" The gods mentioned in Scripture controls nothing. The "God" is in control of all things. The passage teaches that the "god" unbelievers follow, without knowing, is their Idol. Jesus said,
"Your are of your father the devil" they were following the devil and didn't even know he was their father, that's why Jesus had to explain it to them. Jesus said,
"and the desires of your father you want to do." They were doing the desires of their father without knowing. That's why he is the "god" of this lost world.
You do not realize that either.

TheSeg: "Therefore you like Steveng believe Satan is a God?"

You and Mark V (and a few others) have something in common. You take things out of context.

Nana and Steveng

So I take it, you believe Paul is teaching and is saying there's are more than just the one true God?
Therefore you like Steveng believe Satan is a God?

And I am wrong there is more than just one true God.
Is this what you want to teach me and the world?
There are many gods or more than just one?

So let me ask you straight out!
You believe Satan is a God, because of the bible?
Like in 2Corinthians_4:4?

To you then, the bible is saying Satan is a God!
Or some kind of god and you believe he is, right?

Is this right, Nana?
You actually believe Satan is a god?
When you know there is only one?
How's that?

Mark E, I believe the question blog was very clear. "What will stop the power of God" and the answer is nothing. Anyone who says they have more power then God has to be an unbeliever. No genuine believer who has true faith in God for all things would ever say such things. It is true what Christan said, if they believe man has power over God then they should worship man, and not our Omnipotent God. For their claims that they depend on Him is false. Lost mankind does worship man, that is why they are lost.

First, we cannot be lost after becoming Believers. Jesus said in John 10 that no one can snatch a Believer out of God's hand.

So then this is not about believers, those that are in Christ!
Because nothing can snatch a believer out of Gods hands, Right.

Than this is about unbelievers!
Those who believe the power of God has stopped working in them!
But not that it has actually stopped, but that they believe!
God had left them or stop working in them!

Christ the words of God said:
So long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
This is his word!

Second, we must abide in Jesus if we are to be effective Believers. Jesus said in John 15 that we cannot bear fruit unless we are abiding in Him.

However, when we do not abide in Jesus, we cannot bear fruit and become an "ineffectual Believer".

So I understand the blog question to say "What will cause us to stop abiding in Jesus and make us ineffectual Believers"?

---Mark_Eaton on 9/25/13


Exactly, and some will bear 30%, 70% and 100%. That % depends on us, that is our obedience to ABIDE IN HIM, as we can do NOTHING of ourselves. No longer I but Christ in me. God Spirit and power do not work through your flesh EXCEPT to continually put it to death. Romans 8:11-13

14 But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.

17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.

But we do not defeat him. Second, he is only one Spirit, he is not omnipresent. He cannot be everywhere at one time, only God can do that.

Kathr, You need to understand what it mean to grieve or quench the Spirit. We must first understand that this indicates the Spirit possesses personality. Only a Person can be grieved, therefore the Spirit must be a Divine Person in order to have this emotion. He grieves are is quench the same way people are. We grieve the Spirit by living like the pagans ( Eph. 4:17-19) by lying (4:25) by being angry 4:26,27). Once we know what quench/grieve the Spirit means, we can answer the question correctly. It does not mean we are defeating the power of God. Because if God wanted to use His power He could strike us dead in a second. The reason people do what they do, is because God allowed them to do what they do by His power.

"Disobedience is that thing which stops God's power from working in our Favour." Adetunji

Really? Wasn't it the apostle Peter who wrote, "And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, BEING DISOBEDIENT: WHEREUNTO ALSO THEY WERE APPOINTED." 1 Peter 2:8

So how does one "stops God's power from working" when it was God who purposed them to be disobedient from the beginning in the first place, according to Peter's message in his epistle? If the man of dust can stop God, you should be worshipping the man rather than God Almighty.

Kathr 2: you mainly wanted to know,
"My Question is, why isn't MarkV attacking and accusing and name calling Darlene_"

I will tell you why. Because Darline is a sister in Christ, she has never attacked anyone because she has a true love for Christ. She dedicates her life to praying for others and is a prayer warrior for anyone who needs prayer.
You on the other hand trample the Word of God for the sole purpose of arguing and attacking others. Many have seen your wrath. You never speak good about others, only those who defend your stand against me. Those who think like you and are angry people.
So there is a big difference between you and sister Darline. I hope I answered you question correctly.

Hebrews 6:4 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost,

5 And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come,

6 If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance, seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.

Here is a warning as well. We do see the Power of God at work here, but is this saying God in powerless in our life at a certain point because it's God's fault, or man's fault.

Maybe I can help with this question, by sharing how the Bible says we can get more into God's power of His love >

"Do all things without complaining and disputing, that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, holding fast the word of life, so that I may rejoice in the day of Christ that I have not run in vain or labored in vain." (Philippians 2:14-16)

So, if stopping our complaining and arguing can help us get into living in God's own love, then, Bryan, I would say arguing and complaining can degrade and destroy us from relating in His love which has His almighty power.
---willie_c: on 9/25/13


Any person who has come to God through Jesus but then continues to live according to their fleshly impulses will most surely quench God's Spirit and power from moving in their lives. God never forces anyone to do what they don't want to do for Him or for themselves for that matter. He will teach us,nudge us in the Spirit,and speak to us through His Word but He never makes us do anything. As the Bible says choose this day whom you will serve. If you want God's power to move for you then you better shift your gears and go the right direction which is to live in the Spirit not the flesh. Obey God.

---Mark_V. on 9/24/13"

You respond by saying it is a contradiction to election and free will. You are so wrong. You are not looking for the Truth.
Those who are beginning their walk with Christ are already saved, they are baby Christians. Yet, concerning those who are lost, we, as believers, are called to bring the gospel truth to all of them, because we don't know who will be called and be saved by God, only God knows who they are. You don't.
No light shines from you, you are still in darkness, making up lies.
---Mark_V. on 9/24/13


If you can hear Jesus you will hear the answer. He tells us very clearly. What will stop his power from working in our lives. Some of you are close.
---Bryan on 9/24/13


I agree with Darlene 1's first comment /answer to this question. Disobedience is that thing which stops God's power from working in our Favour. Deuteronomy 28 confirms this fact.

---Mark_V. on 9/24/13


Isn't this a contradiction of election and no free will? MarkV when will you ever stop contradicting yourself.

You markV are the one in danger, for presuming upon God what He has required of us to do. OBEY. No true Christian will tell others NOT to OBEY THE WORD OF GOD even unto death.

That is where YOUR STUPIDITY is seen here. You are saying what I posted from Scripture is of Satan. are you NUTS! No, you are just so full of hate you will say any STUPID thing exposing that hatred.

Many of you take the blog's question out of context. True, nothing can stop the power of God, who has absolute power, but that is not what the question asks.

The question is stated: What will stop the power of God FROM WORKING IN YOUR LIFE (AS A) CHRISTIAN?


---Steveng on 9/23/13


Thank you Steveng. Some here just can read and comprehend the question. No one has said anything about losing their salvation. The question is about our daily walk. Paul said I DIE DAILY. They may want to revisit that passage, both verses before and after.

Now markv wants to accuse me of having MORE power than God to thwart his version of predestination. He's NUTS! These guys are trouble trouble trouble.
---kathr4453 on 9/24/13


Kathr, your doctrines are most dangerous for many who are just beginning their walk with Christ. And keep those lost from hearing the Truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ. You teach antichrist ideas because of you bias and anger towards anyone who presents the Word of God. Turning the Truth to a lie with your dumb remarks so many times, in order to argue your points.
Any genuine Christian around you should run as far away from you as possible.
---Mark_V. on 9/24/13


Maybe markv doesn't have these verses in his Calvin Bible.
Ephesians 6:10-13

10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.


This warning is to CHRISTIANS.
---kathr4453 on 9/24/13


Brother MarkV, when speaking to those who oppose election (and freewillers oppose this vehemently), we are told by Paul explicitly,

"And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth: Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ."
2 Thessalonians 2:11-14

It's either we are in the delusion or the freewillers are.

Steven, your wrong when you said,
"Satan is the power of the Earth. As the end approaches, Satan will use all of his power to decieve the world, including christians, especially the elite in Christ if that were possible."
God is the power of heaven and the earth. Satan is the god of the lost world only. Not those who belong to God. You say he has the power to deceive the Christians the elect, which is contrary to what Jesus said concerning His Church, His sheep.
"And when He brings them out His own sheep, He goes before them, and the sheep follow Him, for they know His voice. Yet they will by no means follow a stranger but will flee from Him, for they do not know the voice of strangers." John 10:4,5.
---Mark_V. on 9/24/13


some here believe the Trinity is three separate independent contractors all working independently of one another. We are told, WALK in the spirit and you won't fulfill the deeds of the flesh. We walk in the spirit by OBEYING THE WORD ONLY. YOU reap what YOU sow. So no, if YOU as a Christian choose to walk in your flesh, and sow to you flesh, it's not God's power working through you. YOU are working through you. You have to LIVE Galatians 2:20. The problem with the Galatians is they FELL away from obedience to that fact. God DOES NOT EMPOWER your flesh or old man, so said Paul , and to say so is BLASPHEMY.

The doctrine of Calvinism is one of the most dangerous we have. It takes no responsibility at all in obeying the WORD.
---kathr4453 on 9/24/13


I understand how the Will and Power of our Father who is in Heaven works, it is not hidden as you suppose. If you know his word as you say you do you would know what stops the power of God from working in your lives and you would know how to get it follow out of you to do his will. Again all of creation is waiting for us to be the children we are called to be.

The question is stated: What will stop the power of God FROM WORKING IN YOUR LIFE (AS A) CHRISTIAN?

See the difference? A christian CAN fall out of faith as prophesized because of the threat of being persecuted or killed, or the cares of this world.

Satan is the power of the Earth. As the end approaches, Satan will use all of his power to decieve the world, including christians, especially the elite in Christ if that were possible.

There is no power in heaven or on earth!

(Ye do err), not knowing the scriptures, (nor the power of God.)
And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, (All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.)

So it would have to be Christ, but no!
Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, (I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.) Amen.
Hes not going anywhere without you!

Stop the power of God?
I think it would be easier to try and catch the wind!
Not just the air but the wind itself.
Cause just when you think you've got it.
All you really have is a hand full of air!
Peace

Agreed, however we must remember to rest in those verses, have faith in those verses, dwell in those verses etc on a daily basis because

"For the thief comes to steal, kill, destroy (by doubt, fear, lies, etc against those verses) but I (Jesus) that they may have life." John 10:10. This is how God's power is limited in the life of christians.
---Scott1 on 9/23/13


Bryan, this was said by someone who does not understand the power of God
"If NOTHING can keep the Power of God working in us, we would be sinless."
What she does not understand is that what keeps many in the condition they are in, is the Power of God. They are exactly where God wants them to be. God has power to keep everyone sinless but doesn't choose to do that. He is the Restrainer of sin.
God power is not trying to keep everyone sinless, If He was trying to do that, it would happen. Only someone who does not know the God of Scripture would make such a remark.

Well Bryan, we are told we can quench the Holy Spirit in our lives. God's power works through us in the power of the Holy Spirit. and it certainly is not God's power in us that chooses to sin.

If NOTHING can keep the Power of God working in us, we would be sinless.

The WORD of God is LIVING AND POWERFUL. One must OBEY the WORD, yielding to God, totally surrendered for HIS power TO WORK IN US and through us.

Many have shipwrecked their faith out of disobedience and self will.

"What will stop the power of God from working in your life Christians?" Nothing.
"Indeed before the day was, I am He,
And there is no one who can deliver out of My hand, I work, and who will reverse it? " Isa 43:13 NKJV
"From eternity to eternity, I am God.
No one can snatch anyone out of My hand. No one can undo what I have done. " NLT
"Yea, since the day was, I am He, and there is none that can deliver out of My hand: I will work, and who can hinder it?" ASV
"If it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it, lest haply ye be found even to fight against God." Act 5:39
"Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? are we stronger than He?" 1Cr 10:22
---josef on 9/23/13


Bryan, no person can stop the power of God. Unless you believe you can. And if you believe that, then you are truely not saved at all. For the lost believe they can because they believe they can make the choice that are against God, but they only proof that God has never saved them. Once a person is born of God, he is never lost again. Jesus said they will never perish. He sustains all genuine believers. Warnings are all over the New Testament, in order to keep those who believe from doubting their faith. The one's who believe you can lose your salvation by your own works, are those who believe they are saved by their own works -free will.
If you don't trust God to save you, then you have no faith in God.
---Mark_V. on 9/23/13


"And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not. Search the scriptures, for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life. I receive not honour from men. But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you. I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive. How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only?"
KJV

The man made from dust can stop God's power from working in the life of a Christian or let alone the life of a heathen? Really?

If that's even possible, I assure you that your worship of God Almighty is in vain. That's because according to you the man has the power to stop God's power, which on hindsight tells me that the man is much more powerful than God.

How ridiculous you sound!
---christan on 9/22/13


Backsliding.

Most christians believe you cannot fall away from the faith, but there are many warnings in the entire bible about "backsliding" and "falling away" from the faith. The Israelites did it in the Old Testament, the christians can surely do it in the New Testament. To fall away, one must have faith to fall away from.
---Steveng on 9/22/13


Any person who has come to God through Jesus but then continues to live according to their fleshly impulses will most surely quench God's Spirit and power from moving in their lives. God never forces anyone to do what they don't want to do for Him or for themselves for that matter. He will teach us,nudge us in the Spirit,and speak to us through His Word but He never makes us do anything. As the Bible says choose this day whom you will serve. If you want God's power to move for you then you better shift your gears and go the right direction which is to live in the Spirit not the flesh. Obey God.
